Omotola in London shooting feature film Amina

The actress is quietly racking up roles in quality movies that might put her in contention in the Best Actress category in the 2012 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).

Star actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde barely landed Lagos from Accra where she had been shooting Leila Djansi's much awaited film "Ties that Bind", when she had to jet off again for another major shoot in London. This time, she is starring in a feature film titled AMINA alongside British Actors Wil Johnson and Vincent Reagan

There is so much secrecy surrounding the project that all we managed to get were 2 pictures from production manager Afshan Hassan. We also gather that the film is being directed by a Uk based director Christian Ashaiku. The film is an emotional drama about Amina who is left disillusioned that all men have to offer her is sorrow, pain and humiliation after an unplanned pregnancy at 16. Audiences will be taken on a journey to see what it will take for Amina to date again.

When questioned about the production, all Omotola could say was "I feel appreciated and challenged". The actress is quietly racking up meaty roles in quality movies that might put her in contention in the Best Actress category in the 2012 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA). Till the producers are ready to let the press in , all we can report is that Omotola is poised to achieve meaningful things this year and 2012.
